Arpan

“It is a denial of Justice not to stretch out a helping hand to the fallen that is the common right of humanity.”

– Seneca the Elder, Roman Philosopher

The word “Arpann” is a Hindi word, meaning “to give” or what we call “Dāna”. Mythologically, Arpann or the giving deeds has been regarded as holy and the very foundation of the civilization. The Vedas, Upanishads, Purans, Smritis, Quran, Bible, and many other religious texts affirm great worth on Dāna. Ramcharitmanas compares Dāna with an axe in the battle of life. As you slay enemies with a battle axe, so slay sins and hardships with Dāna. Anciently and even now charity occupies a great importance and holds an efficacy to accord basic necessities to needy ones.

India is the home of world’s one-fourth people who sleep empty bellied. There are numerous people who subsist in chilling winters in want of woolens. The world is flooded with can of worms, and AbhyutthÃnam attempts to pull the sufferers out from the inferno of their present life. The existence of billions of starving, poor, unclothed, homeless and destitute people points to the need of our project “Arpann”. These people are like the broken thread of the society. We believe that preservation of human existence is the first step of the ladder of human development.

This project aims to accord the needy people with the essential necessities of living like “Food to Hungry”, “Water to Thirsty”, “Cloth to Naked”, “Pen and Paper to one who wants to study”, “Guidance to one who is Lost”, etc.

Arpann focuses on assisting needy people to carry out their survival at ease as we consider that everybody is bestowed with right to live a dignified life. Arpann eventually seeks to facilitate AbhyutthÃnam in achieving its paramount goal of uplifting society.

“SCHOOL BHARO AANDOLAN” is an initiative pointed towards the aim that every child irrespective of being poor or disadvantaged shall have access to elementary education bestowed under Article 21-A of Indian Constitution and Right to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009. Section 12 (1) (c) of the RTE Act is the most appealing and unique provision aiming the quality education and equality which is a rule for every democratic nation.

Under the scheme of this initiative, we mobilize through door step surveys the children (SC/ST/BPL/Physically handicapped/Orphan children) deprived of education in private schools and get them admitted and complete their education in nearby schools under RTE Act, 2009. We undertake to spread legal awareness regarding Right to education and accord all possible assistance in getting child admitted to respective private schools.

The journey of School Bharo Aandolan doesn’t ends with admissions only; our endeavor extends up to completion of elementary education without any hurdles or discrimination. We make sure that every child bears the fruits of law by getting all the facilities like Zero Fee, free books, No Punishment, No Discrimination, etc.

Activities under Intervention Plan

  • Evaluation and selection of Target areas

To climb the ladder one must begin from the bottom therefore the first step of our initiative was the evaluation and selection of the target areas. Since the beneficiaries of the RTE u/s 12(1)(c) are weaker and disadvantaged group children, we select the group of some Bastis (slums/shanty towns) where people belonging to weaker and disadvantaged sections usually resides.

  • Survey Form

After selecting the target area, we formulate the survey form according to all the requisites to fill the RTE forms.

  • Door-to-Door Surveys

The next step after formulating the survey forms is the collection of data. Our volunteers/ members conduct surveys in the target areas by means of survey forms and endeavor to make unaware people aware of their children’s right to education and their duty to send their children to schools. During the School Bharo Aandolan of session 2015-16, the task of convincing people to send their children to schools was the considerable challenge because they were nut shelled with their contemporary notions like “putting their children to earn money, or confining the daughters at home only, or the fear that their child would fell prey to self-deprecation”. Through surveys we mobilizethe necessary information which is required for filling of RTE forms.

  • Affixing posters/Banners/Pamphlets of School Bharo Aandolan

To have an extensive reach, we affix the posters/Banners/ Pamphlets of School Bharo Aandolan on public places specifying the eligibility of child for RTE admission and our contact details affording everyone to approach us and get their child’s or relatives’ online RTE form filled.

  • Forms on NGO’s Website

In addition to doorstep surveys, anyone can fill the form hereon this website and as per the information so filled we consequently fill the online RTE form if found eligible and reliable.

You can fill the details of child for RTE here: (LINK)

  • Online Application on RTE Portal

As per the data collected, we fill the online forms on RTE portal and made entries of the admission numbers.

You may yourself fill the RTE form on RTE portal at: http://rte.raj.nic.in/Home/Home.aspx

  • Assist in compilation of required documents

To avail RTE admission, comprehensive eligibility criteria is specified and for the verification of the same certain documents are required to be produced. An eligible child should not be left deprived of education for the want of documents thence we assist the needy unaware people in compilation of required documents.

  • Centralized Online Lottery

The RTE admissions are conducted through centralized lottery system and applicants are allotted schools on priority basis. The data as to allotment of schools to the applicantsis then assimilated and the applicants are duly communicated their allotted schools.

  • Reporting in Schools

Within 7(seven) days of announcement of the lottery, the children allotted with school is required to be reported in that school with all the required documents. We personally endeavor to let our targeted children report in the schools.

  • Final Admission

School Bharo Aandolan doesn’t come to an end by final admission; we constantly provide counseling to the street children and their parents so that they did not fall prey to self-deprecation.
